Too many change initiatives fail. They are launched with a fanfare, but somewhere down the road the wheel comes off. The cumulative result of these failures and false-starts results in a general skepticism regarding change.
Understanding Group Change
There are many models that help to explain why it can be difficult for an individual to change. But what about change that is required of a group, a team or an entire organization?
The pitstop model embraces the complexity of change through the lens of social psychology. It provides a framework for engaging widely in the process of generating and sustaining change.
Engagement is Vital
Engagement is a vital ingredient in the process of change. Yet, in the rush to ‘make things happen’ it often gets neglected.
Pitstop programs are based on a six-step group engage-change model designed to spread ownership and accountability for change.
The secret to engage-change is to slow down and to generate Awareness, Dialog and Focus. Only then is it safe to speed up with confidence to Mobilize, Act and Sustain.
A key objective of all pitstop interventions is to create a safe environment for executives to open up and have honest, respectful and yet challenging dialog.
